    Thanks Brian. It's gettin' there. Most of my fun-money went to plane tickets in 2010, which is why nothing much happened for most of the year and then things sort of exploded.

    Lookin great man that armor looks like it can take a hell of a beating. That bumper really adds to the clearance and those skids are solid looking.

    ATO is in R&D for a front bumper?!?! I've been droolin over the Relentless plate bumpers but shipping is expensive as hell. That and I'm in the red for my taxes this year so wife won't give me any more play money for a while :(

    Yes. Current projects under design include leaf spring shackle flip kits and 2nd gen front bumper offerings. Sliders will also be debuting soon.

    As far as the quality/solidity of the products, I can tell you it's second to none. They have a *very* strong commitment to quality and overbuilt strength.

    Performance review:

    This armor is beast. I slammed the sliders hard. I teetered the entire truck on the transfer case skid. At one point, I hit the front skid so hard the horn on the truck honked, like a clown nose.

    This stuff laughed at all of it. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the stock Toyota rear diff, which blew out. Pics and vids below. Just so's we're clear, these pics and vids were all taken by other people...none of them are mine:

    Yeah, a quarter of it chunked the fuck out, it broke in two places all the way through. You can lift it right out like a puzzle piece.

    The pinion is also fucked to death. ECGS is gonna have some work to do building this thing in a few months...
